So there is a girl in our dept who's job it is to manage the birthdays of 126 district managers, and 19 Vice Presidents, and then the measley 6 girls in our department. Friday would have been when we celebrated anyone else's bday had it fallen on the weekend. Friday, was not when we celebrated my birthday. They didn't forget. They just didn't do anything. I'm pretty offended. I stay up late weeknights cooking food for their stupid birthday's. What. Ev. Er. The universe is testing me to remember the importance of birthdays and Christmas. It's Ok, they didn't do anything. Or even use the recycled decorations for my desk. Whatever. It's important that....oh wait, they didn't even wish me a happy birthday.

Fucking bitches.

I got my liscense renewed. That was a treat. I actually found a really good liscense bureau where everyone is friendly. (if you're local email me!) I had my new photo taken. The lady says "you've lost weight" I said, yea I know and laughed. (my picture was horrid. I wasnt even smiling back then) Then she pulled up the old picture with my new one and said "I had to compare this because you don't look like the same person" then she turned the screen around to show me. Oh. Mah. Gawd. That was 52 lbs ago. Seeing myself along the way, and today it's not that noticeable. I have only a handful of pictures from before, because, well. I wore a size 18 and I was embaressed of myself. Yea. 18.

Last Friday, I got gas at GetGo. I dunno bout non-Ohio folk, but we have a store where you earn 10 cents off a gallon of gass per $50 you spend. (I think like, Sam's club and BJ's wholesale do this also)

Normally, I cash these in at 20-60 cents a gallon cus I can't wait, and they do expire. I don't know how that works, I just know they expire. Since my recent health food kick, I've spent a truck-ton of money on food, and this was my gas receipt.

Yea, at first I was like "woooo-hooo-hoo, I get gas for 0.001 a gallon!" But really, I got 11.769 gallons for 0.01. I saved $19.28. Pretty much I got free gas.

Top that.

Oh yea, I gained a pound at Friday's weigh in. Then, Friday I drank a bottle of captain morgans. Saturday I had whiskey and vodka. Alchohol is evil. I'll have a better recap tomorrow. Today I'm still half asleep.

OMG...I think you're my long lost kidney...er...cousin. ;-) That is rude that they didn't even say happy BD! Hmpf!

As for topping the gas for free...I got nothing.

You know what?

I turn 27 in exactly 2 weeks and I TOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOTALLY understand how you feel because NO one remembers since my b'day is the day after Christmas, so I spend all of December reminding folks and bleh. I hate it.

I'm really sorry they didn't do anything on your behalf. :(

Well, I would say that you won't need to stay up late making anything for their birthdays anymore. Just tell them, "Oh, I didn't think we were still doing that since we didn't for my birthday."

I love Fuel Perks. I'm not so desperate to rack them up like I used to be since the price of gas went down. Every time I fill up now, I feel like taking a picture of the gas pump.

Congratulations on the new driver's picture. Keep up the good work. It does pay off, huh? :)

ew. not cool about the coworkers. but very cool about the gas! i don't do enough shopping to really get any gas, but i know my mom uses fuelperks all the time!

Maxie said...

Um that sucks about the birthday. Definitely don't do anything big for them when theres roll around... suck.

And 52 lbs? That's AWESOME.

Mike said...

Yeah, like you said, "fucking bitches."

Merider, is that a Bianchi you have there? It looks like it, but the picture is really small.

Barb said...

That's so cool to get gas for nothing!

I wish my job FORGOT my birthday, but they're always on it! Damn.

Narm said...

I ate at Chipotle today and got free gas too! Am I too old for fart jokes?

Ms. Megan said...

Happy Birthday!! Mine was yesterday! I hate when people forget it drives me crazy... so I always have a little too much to drink and tell everyone that it is my birthday!

Ms. Megan said...

So excited to share a birthday with someone!

Erin said...

Yeah, they suck... no questions. But at least they did it Monday right?

And don't worry so much about the 1 pound - most likely it is the muscle you have put on from working out so much!!

WTG on the gas - saving money rocks :)
